Fremont Indian State Park and Museum- Sevier, Utah

Tuesday, April 2, 2019


Traveling back north, we decided to head off the I-15 and onto the I-70 to spend a day/evening at the Fremont Indian State Park and Museum. We actually came in on Hwy 4, and went up the mountain and then down into the canyon, to get here, but this way isn't advisable as the easiest route in. It's higher elevation, and numerous winding sections, and we have a 37' RV with tow. Posed some issue and as well narrow canyon walls at the base. It can be done, and the scenery is beautiful, but just a heads up, that if you wished to avoid that, you would take another way in.

During construction of the Interstate 70, was when the Fremont Indian village was uncovered. The Fremont Indian State Park and Museum is near Sevier, Utah and was once home to one of the largest communities of Fremont Indians ever found. 



Make your first stop to the Visitor Centre and Museum on your way in.
The museum offers a film of the Fremont Indians, artifacts, hands on activities, rock art tours and exhibits. 


Throughout the park you can still see their rock art on the canyon walls. It's really quite amazing. You'll get a map to the park when you arrive and all the points of interest will be clearly marked for you. Some are right along the roadside and others can be found by taking short, trail walks.





We stayed in the Sam Stowe campground, which is quite close to the Visitor Centre, gift shop and museum. The park holds two campgrounds- this one, with 7 full service sites and the more primitive campground- Castle Rock, with 31 sites. Watch for their cabin stays coming soon.




The area is beautiful. Tucked away in the canyon, quiet, and yet despite being surrounded with rocks, I was able to use my cell phone and the internet with Verizon 4G service most of the time.


We had a wonderful stay here, so if your in the area, make a stop, stay for the day or longer. Enjoy the history of the area, the friendly staff and a quiet stay at a one of their campgrounds.
